Sanders blasts 'very broken criminal justice system' after Sandra Bland ruling
Bernie Sanders stated, "Sandra Bland should not have died while in police custody. There’s no doubt in my mind that she, like too many African-Americans who die in police custody, would be alive today if she were a white woman... We need to reform a very broken criminal justice system."
In my opinion the officer was out of line, acting outside the scope of his employment when asking Ms. Bland to extinguish her cigarette at the conclusion of the peaceful traffic stop.
With that said, a few months before she left us, activist Sandra Bland recorded a video declaring *"War on the Gang-bangers and Thugs"* who she believes have negatively impacted her quality of life as well as harming peaceful people in her community and many American communities. "Gang-bangers and Thugs" whose anti-social lifestyle cause peaceful people as well as police officers to become anxious, fearing for their personal safety?
Essentially Sandra was speaking about our expanding and shameful *National Epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect*, aka, *Poverty*, that for more than two generations has deprived untold numbers of American kids from experiencing a fairly happy American kid childhood with *Safe Streets* to travel and play on.
*Child Abuse and Neglect* that is primarily responsible for our prisons and far too many American communities being populated by depressed, angry, frustrated, undisciplined, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults *(NY Times May 18, 2015 - Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers)* full of resentment for irresponsibly being introduced to a life of hardships and struggles.
*Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect* that often leads depressed, sometimes suicidal children to develop into depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable teens and adults lacking empathy and compassion for others, though needing to vent their pent up negative emotions, often causing emotional and physical harm to peaceful people...instead of venting their resentment and pain on the immature single moms and/or dads who introduced them to a life of pain and struggle by irresponsibly building a family before acquiring the practical skills, PATIENCE and means to successfully raise and nurture a developing young child who matures into a fairly happy responsible teen and adult.
Did Bernie Sanders, Mrs. Hillary Clinton, Mr. and Mrs. Barack Obama, supporters of the Black Lives Matter organization or any other concerned citizen hear or seriously consider Sandra's passionate plea for peace...or listen to Sandra's other videos calling for peace and unity?
If Americans sincerely wish to reduce police fear and anxiety that sometimes leads to police misconduct and/or aggression, the question all concerned, compassionate Americans should seriously be asking ourselves, our elected, civil, social, community and religious leaders is, "What real substantial changes in our society's attitude and laws need to occur to prevent abuse that often causes young kids to mature into depressed, frustrated, angry teens and adults as a result of experiencing the *emotional and/or physical trauma of an abusive childhood?*"
